V is for Victory

The hymn, “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel,” reminds us of God’s promises to free his people from Satan, sin, and death through the victory of King Jesus–the promised rod of Jesse. The LORD brings magnificent victory to his people in the most unbelievable ways. Through humility and seeming defeat, the Lord Jesus takes on flesh, lives a perfect life, and is hung on a criminal’s cross. It looks like Satan rules the day. But on Sunday, everything changes. Victory belongs to King Jesus, and his people share in his triumph.
